    AXEL Holds Press Conference Today

    The concept behind Axel, the upcoming Cirque du Soleil ice show, is that it will feel like a big arena rock show. The idea, said Fernand Rainville, the show’s stage director and writer, is “to make it feel like a rock opera, make it feel like a musical concert and/or a sports outing. To create that energy.
